There are three main types of bank transfer, domestic same day (CHAPS), domestic normal (BACS), and international. A same day transfer, as its name implies, takes place on a single day, being both debited to the sender's bank account and credited to the recipient's bank account on the same day. The two parts of the transaction are not simultaneous, and can take several hours before the money is credited to the recipient's bank. Sometimes transfers sent late on one day are not notified to the recipient until the next day. Same day transfers are one of the best ways of transferring large amounts securely. They tend to cost upwards of £20.
Standards transfers take about three to four days, but are becoming a popular choice for many customers, particularly those with telephone or internet banking facilities. Unfortunately, the recipient's bank does not always notify the recipient upon receipt, ours certainly does not, and it is best to try to ensure that your payment contains some kind of unique identification. Again our bank does not always pass this on to us.
International transfers take from about 1 day to 1 week, depending also whether they are sent as express or normal. Bank charges for international transfers are higher than for domestic ones, and are levied at both ends. It is important to elect to pay all fees.
